Seeing all of these other gorgeous Fender American Jazz Basses from other Forumites inspired me to start looking for a special one for myself (and my youngest daughter who is a bonafide bassist). I actually had been eyeing these special edition 2017 Jazz basses with the special aged cherry lacquer and flame maple tops for over a year. There were only a couple left NOS and I just couldn't resist this beauty. It plays like a dream and sounds so old school. I just love it and I couldn't be happier.
